Sonnax Heavy duty E clutch Hub 38 spline
Please confirm that you have the 38 spline count before purchase.
(Based on HPR,s experience with many N57 BMW 8HP transmissions, it is highly likely that you have the weak 38 spline if you transmission was made in between 2011 and 2014.
We have also seen them in a few 2015 models.)
Vehicles with ZF8HP70 transmissions utilize an "E" hub that is made from weak, cast A380 aluminum. This material is no match for the high torque generated in these applications. The lock splines of the hub are prone to shearing or breaking, resulting in failsafe, ratio codes and loss of movement. In addition, the steel clutch plates dig into the splines on the drum, causing the plates to hang up and burn. This can happen in as few as 20,000 miles.Sonnax heavy duty "E" clutch hub 35572-38T is crafted from forged 4000-series aluminum, the same material used for high performance engine pistons. The Sonnax billet hub features a far superior yield strength versus the OE hub, so you can rest easy knowing it will stand the test of time — no more worrying about comebacks due to a failed OE hub.
- High-strength, forged hub eliminates spline failure
- Improved material significantly increases "E" clutch durability
